QPR boss Harry Redknapp rules out move for Blackburn Rovers hitman Jordan Rhodes
QPR manager Harry Redknapp has ruled out a move for Jordan Rhodes after claiming Blackburn Rovers will not lower their asking price for their ‘amazing’ top scorer.
Redknapp, who is the market for a new striker, said: “He’s too expensive.
“He’s a good player but I don’t think they’ll lower the price.
“They want their money back – they want their £8m or £9m for him.
“Every week he scores. He’s amazing.”
Rhodes has scored an incredible 44 goals in 76 appearances for Rovers since his £8m move from Huddersfield Town in August 2012.
Gary Bowyer has continually stressed that the Scotland international striker, 23, is not for a sale while admitting that every player has a price.
That price for Rhodes, however, is not the ‘£8m or £9m’ quoted by Redknapp.
Bowyer told the Lancashire Telegraph earlier this month: “Jordan Rhodes isn’t for sale.
“I was never very good at maths but we paid £8m for him, then he goes and scores the most goals in the calendar year – more than Luis Suarez – and yet he is still valued at £8m.
“That doesn’t quite add up to me.
“But then again I’m no Carol Vorderman!”
